Something that I can do pretty well is cook. I've been cooking since I was about fifteen or so and I never really stopped. I started out by learning how to make spaghetti sauce from my dad. I then graduated to cooking three or four course meals on my own. Now, I can cook just about anything and I have a few signature dishes that I can make with one hand behind my back. Spaghetti, French onion soup, boeuf bourguignon, chicken Florentine, and chicken Marsala are among them. 

This March, for Oscar night, me and my friend got together and over the span of the Oscar weekend, planned out a whole formal dinner event. Our plan was to spend Saturday shopping and preparing as much food as possible in advance and finishing everything up Sunday before the show. Our menu consisted of spanakopita, butternut squash soup, mushroom and pea risotto, Greek salad, Brussels sprout hash, and chicken tzatziki. Everything came out really well, and I regret that I didn't take any pictures. 

This year, we're planning a Christmas party. So far, the menu consists of roast turkey, mushroom and pea risotto, butternut squash soup, chocolate mint pie, peppermint bark, and vegetable lasagna. I'm definitely going to have to remember to take pictures of how everything comes out.
